Need some good meat-free recipes now that Lent is here? This one was outstanding! This would be such a treat for your family or dinner guests lucky enough to have it. It makes 4 servings.
I really can't say enough good things about it. It was creamy and filling and just excellent. This was a recipe I got a few weeks ago from the Publix ad. The original recipe called for two small lobster tails, but I don't have a clue how to cook those, so I just loaded up on shrimp. It also called for a can of cream of shrimp soup, but I used cream of mushroom and had great results. The recipe below reflects that.
The recipe also calls for 10 ounces of lobster bisque, and I used a container of Publix's bisque. I don't know that I've noticed or seen this at other grocery stores (a la Winn Dixie or Walmart); then again, if you have a Whole Foods or Central Market another wonderfully fancy grocery store nearby, you can probably find something very similar.
Try this! I hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
